(I couldn't find any other forum to put this in, so it's here.)
This is my first week back to restricting my food intake. I'm basically tired and hungry most of the time (sleeping keeps my brain from listening to my stomach). I understand why I'm hungry - body is dealing with less food and has to use the fat stores - but that doesn't make it less upsetting and bothersome. I spent last evening crying in the bedroom because I was hungry and wanted to eat to make the stomach pains go away, but I knew I would just pig out. It's worse in the late afternoon/evening, even with breaking my meals into 6 per day.
I have no idea why I'm tired, though, except my brain is telling me to sleep to better deal with the hunger. I'm going to bed and getting up earlier, getting 6 hours of actual sleep (last night). Last night, I went to bed at 11p, lay awake crying/calming down for 2 hours, slept until 6a and lay awake for another 2 hours. I end up napping during the day which is fine.
Just needed to get this out.
